Incident Review

Requiring an "Incident Review" is an optional feature in ResiDex, but allows for complete documentation of incidents.

If your organization allows direct care staff to document Incidents in ResiDex, it is useful to have a Nurse or Supervisor review the Incidents. This is called an "Incident Review." The Incident Review not only allows a nurse to verify the accuracy of the documentation, but also add additional information, identify action steps needed to prevent further occurrences, and specify if additional training for staff is needed.

ResiDex Incident Types Setup

Incident tracking and quality management is integral to the provision of quality service.  ResiDex's Incident Management system can be easily customized to meet your specific needs.  This article will explain how this is done.

Incident Clinical Review Setup

An incident can be composed of up to 15 questions to record the actual incident, but it can also contain an additional 15 questions for a Clinical or Supervisory Review. This article will address setting up the Clinical Review questions.

Incident Body Diagram

RTasks Incidents allow you to record a "Body Diagram" quickly and easily as part of recording an Incident. The Body Diagram is used to note any physical injuries a resident had resulting from an Incident (i.e. bruises, lacerations, skin tears etc.)

The incident Body Diagram is optional and can be displayed on whichever incident type a user specifies.

For incident body diagrams to be visible, the following configuration options need to be set to "Yes":

  • Enter Incidents only In Rtasks 
  • Enter Assessments only in Rtasks

The incident type(s) must also specify that the body diagram is "required".
